Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Strangers stopping strangers just to shake their hand

I was a changed person by the end of Half Step at the Nov. Binghamton show in '77. I was 18 and had just moved out of the nest, I needed something like this bad. I like it all! to this day, but I must admit that there is also something that I believe shapes my Deadheadness. After the Bing. show, I saw Jerry a few times from the end of 77 to the begining of 78, then saw the Dead again at William & Mary(the Dew@!!!) Getting good copies of this time period of the Jerry shows ala Pure Jerry from Dead.net(only took 16 days to ship a 2-3day order!) reminds me of how I was "programmed". There was something just as indescribable and freakin amazing at those Jerry shows-the 3-18-78 Warner show stands out for me- that I believe it prepared me in a certain way for the next 50+ Dead shows. I just get goosebumps to this day; listening to the collection or even reading posts here. I love it all, and I just can't thank the people enough who make this archive possible, from the fans, the tapers, the digital magicians, the uploaders, to all the regular posters here; you make my religion of cryptical ambiguity on a roller coaster a genuine reality. Don't get sucked into it now!

While there is no doubt the seventies must have been great for GD music ,the eighties were the top of the best deadheads to meet . Witty ,intelligent, courtious ,friendly ,i could trust my life to "strangers"i never met before to go to shows ,hang out in parkinglots and spend nights and days, miles and places ,never had to worry nor be wary of what could happen ,from early eighties to mid nighties . I don't know if it is due to Jery's death ,but,frankly today,the deadheads that were are not really there anymore . I don't recognize their spiits ,and those ,round foty years old today, are not people i wouldtrust wwith my life ,nowadays !That is more revealing that any other truth i see concerning "deadheads" of today !
